INGREDIENTS

baking powder
baking soda
salt
ground ginger
ground cloves
ground nutmeg
ground cinnamon
packed brown sugar
unsalted butter, softened

DIRECTIONS
  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon. Set aside. In a medium bowl, cream together the brown sugar, butter, and shortening. Stir in the molasses and egg. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients until everything is incorporated. Cover and chill dough for at least 1 1/2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets or line them with parchment paper.
  3. Roll the chilled dough into 1 inch balls. Roll each ball in the coarse sugar. If you do not have coarse sugar, you can use regular sugar. Place cookie 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets, and flatten slightly.
  4. Bake for 9 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are cracked but still soft in the center. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks. Store cooled cookies in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
